Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks correspondingly. New studies centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered
benefits of chiropractic care to which Pensacola chiropractic care
patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is the Pensacola chiropractic pain and
stress relieving center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is working on addressing veterans’ needs. Medicine is forefront in the VA care system while many veterans are going
outside that system for additional care. A national study
of veterans found that 52% employed complementary
and integrated health approaches to manage
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation topping
the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation,
and 25% yoga. 84% reported they are interested in trying
at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more
likely to try these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They seek Pensacola chiropractic
care outside the regular system at times, too!
HELPING VETERANS REGAIN THEIR STRENGTH
Veterans with back pain like other back pain sufferers find
that their strength and quality of life decrease. Chiropractic care can oftentimes help. Veterans notably
suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system takes into
consideration such overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System would want to carefully diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to ensure they
are receiving all the care they require.
(2) Your Pensacola chiropractor considers each of our
Pensacola back pain patients’ other issues in the same way to optimize
positive clinical outcomes.
IMPROVING STRENGTH IN LOW BACK PAIN SUFFERING VETERANS
One positive clinical outcome wanted
by all back pain sufferers is to be able to do activities of
daily living as they need and want. Back pain is known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are key daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were sent to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 weeks. The chiropractic patients increased
their pulling strength by 5.08 kgs while the wait list group’s pull strength reduced
by 7.43 kgs. Trunk muscle endurance, disability, pain intensity and fear
avoidance behavior all got better with chiropractic care of
active military personnel with low back pain. (3) Plus, after back surgery,
some veterans will still hurt and want some help.
90.3% of VA chiropractors reported
seeing at least 1 post-back surgery fusion patient in the past
month. (4) Chiropractic care for post-surgical continued pain is showing
itself to be beneficial. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
uses such pain reducing, strength increasing
care for Pensacola back pain sufferers, too!
